SMART Logocolor

SMART Family Literacy's logo. 

On Halloween night in 2019, the choice was “Book or Treat,” a new Galveston twist on the traditional Halloween greeting. Instead of “Trick or Treat,” the new greeting proved to be popular with both kids and parents. 

Offering books to babies and toddlers as an option to candy was the idea of Kathy Machol, a longtime board member of SMART Family Literacy. As a project of SMART, whose mission focus is early childhood and health literacy, Machol began offering board books to the little ones three years ago. 

SMART Family Literacy is located at 2728 Ave Q, Suite 1A in Galveston, TX 77550. For more information, call 409-996-5399.
